Slice Of Life Session Leesburg, Virginia

I absolutely love in home documentary sessions. Especially when it’s a family that I’ve spent time with starting from their maternity and then their birth session and of course storytelling sessions… And when I get to create a film with them that’s just even better. This session in the beautiful town of Leesburg was no different. I absolutely loved telling their story and finding their uniqueness. Finding the beauty in their ever day moments at home.

Arriving to Pheobe, Ryan & Rose’s house I was immediately greeted with a smile from their sweet girl. It was a beautiful, warm day and I knew we’d be going outside for part of our session as well. Our session started with Phoebe making eggs for her family and the family continuing to get ready. This was something special for them that they specifically asked to have documented. Throughout their session I was awe struck with their connection, by how much they loved each other. By how happy Rose was and continues to be.

After breakfast, a good nursing session and some snuggles sweet Rose and her family decided to head outside where they continued to play and talk to me about how their lives had completely changed since Rose’s birth. How they’ve grown and how she is the highlight of their life.

Documenting their journey, and all of my clients’, is an absolute joy. There is such unique, fun, raw and real beauty in the every day. The everyday moments matter, they make up the big picture of not just your life, but your little one’s lives as well. Here’s just a tid bit of their story, starting with some their images and then to follow you can find their film, where you can also find here.
